#1 RANKED property in Leura on STAYZ

Poet's Cottage provides elegant Blue Mountains accommodation in historic Wentworth Falls, a quick 5 minute drive from Leura village.

The stylishly restored 104-year-old cottage offers chic living amidst old world charm.

Self-contained, with plenty of pampering comforts, the cottage offers an open-plan lounge and dining area, with new kitchen and two bathrooms.

Snuggle up in the three bedrooms with queen bed, double bed, one king single and two single beds.

Watch honeyeaters sip flower nectar from your large entertainment deck, or wander through the vast garden before enjoying the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park, which backs onto your back gate. Then return to the cottage for a pampering spa.

The former home of a celebrated Australian poet, the Cottage combines a Blue Mountains cultural and historical experience with elegant luxury.

Located just an hour and a half from Sydney, Poet's Cottage is perfect for couples, families, business travelers, nature and bird lovers. We would like for you to experience our little piece of heaven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully restored property We had an amazing stay at Poets Cottage. What a beautiful property: pristine, peaceful, comfortable and beautifully appointed in pretty gardens. We really appreciated the provisions and larder basics in the cupboard and fridge. It was amazing that we could hike directly from the house - and did some great trails over our short visit (my thighs are still complaining!). We only wished that we could have extended our stay. The next door neighbour was a star (we all wish that we had someone like that next door!) and Sophia provided regular updates and correspondence in the weeks leading up to our trip. We would recommend your property to anyone - and have done to friends in Sydney - and will certainly return if we're in this part of the world again. The owners restored the place so sympathetically and the Blue Mountains are simply beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent in every way We had a wonderful stay at Poets Cottage & will definitely return. Honestly, they have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable - a fully equipped kitchen with all the utilities you need plus plenty of tea, coffee and other pantry staples. The house is ideally located in a quiet area with bush views out the back and was spotlessly clean (the linen smelled great!). It was easy to locate and we received a warm welcome on arrival. The owner was in contact as soon as we booked and remained in touch to provide us with help and information about the area such as bush walking and places to eat. You can tell a lot of love and pride has gone into restoring this lovely home, I look forward to seeing the progress of the garden in the future. Thanks for letting us share.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, special place - highly recommend We (family of 5 but with grown up children from the UK), stayed here and can't recommend Poet's Cottage more highly. Beautifully appointed and with everything you could need supplied. Wonderfully positioned to take advantage of the Blue Mountains. Sophia is fantastically helpful and we did the National Pass trail walk (totally amazing and just down the road!), which was on her list of recommendations and also (again based on Sophia's suggestions) had the best meal we have had in our entire holiday. If you r looking for a lovely place - look no further.
